Karli hails from Ocean City, NJ where she explored the love of dance throughout her childhood. Her exploration led her to the Children and Teen Program at Broadway Dance Center in NYC where she chose to actively pursue dance as a passion. In 2016, she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BFA in Dance from SUNY Purchase. While at Purchase she was awarded the opportunity to study abroad in Singapore at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. During her time at Purchase, she had the honor of performing works by Bill T. Jones, Merce Cunningham, Rosalind Newman, Kevin Wynn and Kyle Abraham among many others. Karli has since been working as a freelance artist, teacher, and choreographer throughout NYC and the surrounding areas. Karli currently resides in Brooklyn, New York and is so grateful to be part of Dance Key West!
